This unique work covers the history of the individualist feminism movement and of three prominent publications that rose in its defense: The Word, Liberty, and Lucifer the Light Bearer. Although these journals published some of the most important ideas on feminism, anarchism, and personal liberty, they are often overlooked today. Biographies and selections of writing from contributors to these magazines feature the remarkable women and men who laid many of the foundations for modern feminist thought. Included among those profiled are Angela Heywood, who first defended abortion based on woman's self-ownership of her body, and Lillian Harman, who was jailed at the age of 16 for being married without state or church ceremonies. These profiles and writings provide insight into the lives and work of these important, but often neglected early feminists.

From the Inside Flap:

This is a history of the individualist feminism movement and of three prominent publications that rose in its defense: The Word, Liberty and Lucifer the Light Bearer. These often-overlooked 19th century journals published some of the most important ideas on feminism, anarchism and personal liberty. Biographies and selections from contributors to these magazines feature the remarkable women and men who laid many of the foundations for modern feminist thought. Angela Heywood, who first defended abortion based on women's self-ownership of her body, and Lillian Harman, who was jailed at 16 for being married without state or church ceremonies, are two of the women profiled. These fascinating profiles and writings provide insight into the lives and work of these important but often neglected early feminists.
